Dog Training Options

DogSense offers several dog training options to suit your personal goals and learning style:


A combination of private training and group classes is the BEST way to ensure your dog is getting all the training she needs. PRIVATE LESSONS help you focus on your specific training challenges while GROUP CLASSES guide you through all the basics. You will probably learn some things you didn’t even know could be valuable to train and you can learn a lot by watching other dog & handler teams. OUT and ABOUT TOWN CLASSES give you the opportunity to train around everyday distractions, in a variety of locations, with novel dogs in each class.  Learn More…


BEHAVIOR CONSULTATIONS & PRIVATE LESSONS are for the family who wants to focus on a few specific things they want to teach their dog. Or for the person whose dog is presenting behavior challenges beyond basic training.  Whatever your challenge, we work one on one with you and your dog to solve your problem. This is a very flexible program custom designed to meet the needs of the dog owner. Learn More…

SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS are also an option. Create a small group with a friend or one of my other students.


BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE, and OFF-LEASH classes to get your dog off to a great start. Perfect for the family pet or performance dog in the making.  Learn More…

Create Your Own Group: Do you have a group of friends who want to train together? You decide what you want to accomplish and DogSense will help you achieve your goals.


Some of us get addicted to teaching our dogs new skills … or just love spending time being active and learning new things together.  DogSense Sport classes are sure to enhance your relationship with your dog.

I like your approach - making the effort to see things from the dog's point of view makes sense to me and aligns more with the way I like to be treated myself. I think it works.
